Help our foundation reach its goal of doubling its annual scholarship awards of $15,000 to $30,000!
The Joyce Gillespie Harrington Educational & Charitable Foundation advances educational opportunity through its annual college scholarship program and supports personal development and academic success for historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged middle school and high school students throughout Northern Virginia. The foundation also recognizes the academic achievements of these students during its annual award program and in partnership with other local organizations honoring high achieving middle and high school students in its area. During the last 7 years, we have awarded a total of 80 scholarships totaling $122,800.00.
In addition to our focus on scholarship, we also are able to make a difference in the community through our annual Thanksgiving Holiday Dinner for the Homeless, Toys for Kids Holiday Program for economically disadvantaged, and investment and active participation in summer enrichment programs for young men of color. It is our strong belief that actively supporting scholarship, manly deeds, and love for all mankind truly make a major difference in improving our community.
As we begin our year end fundraising program on Giving Tuesday, please consider investing with us in our future. No amount is too small or too big. With your help, we can do more!
